Interviewing Maddox

I stumbled upon a blog entitled Moms Tree House today, and the author does something really neat to encourage writing.  She suggests writing topics once per week for fellow bloggers to write on and then creates a place on her site for them to share their writings with one another.  I think this is a fantastic idea, especially for new bloggers like myself, so I've signed up to participate.  

For my first weekly-writing prompt I chose to interview my little guy.  In case you've never met him allow me to introduce the star of this post, and my life.  

World, this is Maddox. 

I asked Maddox three short questions and wrote down his answers verbatim.  Enjoy.

#1)  What are mommies for?  "Moms are for babies, to feed them; and to clean up dog throw up and poop and for taking care of dogs."  [I said, "Is that all?  Is there anything else moms are for?"  "Nope.  That's it."]

#2)  What do you want to be when you grow up and why?  "I want to be in a licking contest, where I lick things with my really long tongue.  Or, maybe be the guy who passes out the candy at Halloween."

#3)  What is one thing you hate and why?  "I don't like when [classmate's name] at school destroys stuff."

Such enlightening answers from my five year old, huh?  Okay, so they may not be enlightening but they sure are sweet.  


  1. LOL! Don't you love that being a Mom has reduced you to cleaning up poop and throw up? I mean, he sums it up well, but still!
